This range finder does not have a backlight so if it is dusk or dawn it is difficult to read the yardage marker (since the font is black). However, the rangefinder does work at dusk or dawn so if you have something with light coloring (a corn pile or something) to contrast with you will still be able to read the yardage (the yardage stays on the screen for a couple of seconds so you can range something dark and then swivel to a contrasting color and read the numbers).
It was accurate +/- 1 yd up to 65 yds (that's the max distance I tested because I'm not a good enough shot to shoot any further than that with a bow). Many reviews state that this will not range deer up to 600 yds...that is TRUE...but this range finder isn't meant to range deer up to 600 yds. Look at the photo I attached and you will see that this product is only rated at 200 yds for deer ranging. I'm not sure why this isn't made clear on this page but this range finder won't work for long-distance rifle hunting or golf. And honestly, if you are attempting to shoot deer at 400-600 yds then you should probably invest in higher end range finder. This isn't intended to be a top of the line range finder. This is a budget range finder that works really well for bow hunting.
Much to my surprise, I have found nothing wrong with it. Now, it isn't the most powerful rangefinder out there, but I am still giving it 5 stars because not only does it do everything it was advertised to do, it does them at a significantly lower price than most others in its class. I knew how far it could range certain objects when I bought it, and it does exactly what it says it will. That's worthy of 5 stars. After a few days of playing around with it almost non-stop, the following are my findings.
First thing I noticed was anything under 5 yards will not get a reading. Again, it said this in the description so I was expecting it. That is fine; I don't need it for things within reaching distance.
Before testing it, I carefully measured 20 yards and placed my Archery target. Upon using the rangefinder, I got a reading of exactly 20 yards. Awesome. I have since set up a spot for the target at 10 yard intervals to 60 yards. With the 4x magnification I can loose an arrow and use the rangefinder to get a better view of where it hit. That's also nice. I am fine with 4x, although some folks may want more.
The rangefinder itself is small and compact, weighing almost nothing. It fits easily in my hand and is comfortable to hold. Build quality is great. Nothing flimsy or cheap feeling. The battery door is held on by a small flathead screw, easily unscrewed with a key, butter knife, or even, dare I say, a screwdriver.
With farther objects, holding in the button for a longer period is required. About a full second rather than just a simple quick click. I have ranged out to 400 yards with no problems just on trees and houses. I would have went farther, but that was as much room as I have had so far and for bowhunting I won't need that much. Maybe 80 yards at the most, but more reasonably 50 or 60.
The Tilt technology is also a nice feature, especially at the price point this is at. Many other, more pricey models do not have this feature, so I am very pleased with this.
There is also a batter level indicator in the viewing picture, which is convenient. I thought this was something worth mentioning because it could be a selling point for some.
There is really not much more to say about it. It tells you how far away an object is and tells you the true horizontal distance if you're at an angle with Tilt. For a hundred bucks this is one of the best rangefinders you can find. I can wear it on my belt in the nice case it comes in, or attach a lanyard (not included) to wear it around my neck while hunting. It is compact and extremely lightweight, making it almost nothing to pack around. All in all I am very satisfied with my purchase. I highly recommend this rangefinder to anyone, especially if you want to save some money. You don't miss out on quality with this.
I returned this and replaced with Halo XR700-8 700 Yard Laser Range Finder. You can see my review of it on it's page, but wow! 100% different and what I'd expect for a rangefinder. Beware of the Simmons . . . if it was $20, then maybe but it feels like the kids plastic toys.
